    Explanation
    Inactivity and immobility can lead to various complications, such as skin breakdown, permanent contractures, and secretions remaining in the lungs.

In fact, reduced physical activity often leads to decreased intestinal motility and can result in constipation.

    • D.

      Hoyer lift

    B. Transfer belt
    Explanation
    The nurse aide selects the transfer belt to assist Mr. Perez in walking safely because it is a device that can provide support and stability. It can be securely fastened around Mr. Perez's waist, allowing the nurse aide to hold onto the belt and provide assistance while he walks. This helps to prevent falls and provides Mr. Perez with the necessary support he needs due to his weakness and lack of coordination from the previous stroke.

    D. Decreased body functions
    Explanation
    A common sign of approaching death is decreased body functions. As a person nears the end of their life, their body may start to shut down and certain bodily functions may decrease. This can include decreased appetite, decreased energy levels, decreased ability to move or perform daily activities, and decreased organ function. These changes are often indicators that the body is preparing for the end of life.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The term abduction refers to the movement of a body part away from the center or middle line. This means that the body part is being moved outward or away from the midline of the body. It is the opposite of adduction, which refers to bringing a body part towards the center or middle line.

  • 6. 

    You notice that Mrs. Small's vital signs are decreasing and her respiration are zero. You SHOULD

    • A.

      Continue with her normal care.

    • B.

      Wait five minutes an take her vital signs again.

    • C.

      Tell the family that she is dead.

    • D.

      Contact the charge nurse immediately.

    Correct Answer
    D. Contact the charge nurse immediately.
    Explanation
    In this scenario, Mrs. Small's vital signs are decreasing and her respiration is zero, indicating a critical situation. Continuing with her normal care would not be appropriate as immediate action is required. Waiting five minutes and taking her vital signs again would waste precious time and delay necessary intervention. Telling the family that she is dead without consulting a healthcare professional would be unprofessional and potentially distressing for the family. Contacting the charge nurse immediately is the most appropriate action as they can provide guidance and mobilize the necessary resources to address the situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    After Mrs. Small's death, her husband wishes to share his feelings and emotions. The nurse aide SHOULD

    • A.

      Listen and try to comfort him.

    • B.

      Change the subject.

    • C.

      Tell him to go to a counselor.

    • D.

      Tell him to keep his feelings to himself.

    Correct Answer
    A. Listen and try to comfort him.
    Explanation
    After Mrs. Small's death, her husband is likely experiencing grief and may need emotional support. As a nurse aide, it is important to provide compassionate care and empathy to patients and their families. By listening and trying to comfort him, the nurse aide can offer solace and help him process his emotions during this difficult time. Changing the subject, telling him to go to a counselor, or telling him to keep his feelings to himself would not be appropriate responses and may further isolate him in his grief.

      Negligence.

    • B.

    • C.

      Defamtion.

    • D.

      Harding.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Negligence.
    D. Harding.
    Explanation
    Saying that a coworker took a client's money when this is UNTRUE is an example of negligence. Negligence refers to the failure to take reasonable care or fulfill one's duty, resulting in harm or damage to another person. In this case, spreading false information about a coworker's actions without proper evidence or investigation shows a lack of care and responsibility, which can lead to negative consequences for the coworker and the client. The term "harding" is not a recognized term or concept related to the given scenario.

    Paraplegia is a condition characterized by the paralysis of the legs or lower part of the body. This means that individuals with paraplegia have a loss of motor function and sensation in their lower limbs, resulting in an inability to move or feel sensations below the waist. It does not affect the arms or upper part of the body, or the left half of the body.

  • 11. 

    The MOST accurate method of measuring body temperature is

    • A.

      Rectal.

    • B.

      Oral.

    • C.

      Axial.

    • D.

      Feeling the forhead.

    Correct Answer
    A. Rectal.
    Explanation
    Rectal temperature measurement is considered the most accurate method because it provides a direct measurement of the core body temperature. The rectum is close to the internal organs and is less affected by external factors such as ambient temperature or oral intake. This method is commonly used in medical settings, especially for infants and young children, as it provides a reliable and precise measurement of body temperature.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which of the following sets of vital signs should be reported IMMEDIATELY?

    • A.

      T98.6, P-60, R-14, BP-120/60

    • B.

      T-102.4, P-100, R-32, BP-180/100

    • C.

      T-99.6, P-80, R-16, BP-132/70

    • D.

      T-97.6, P-82, R-20, BP-110/60

    Correct Answer
    B. T-102.4, P-100, R-32, BP-180/100
    Explanation
    The set of vital signs that should be reported immediately is T-102.4, P-100, R-32, BP-180/100. This is because the temperature is significantly elevated, the pulse rate is elevated, the respiratory rate is elevated, and the blood pressure is high. These abnormal vital signs may indicate a serious medical condition or an emergency situation that requires immediate attention and medical intervention.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A large glass holds 240 cc. The patient drank one-third of the large glass. The nurse aide would record this as

    • A.

      1/3 fo 240 cc.

    • B.

      30 cc.

    • C.

      80 cc.

    • D.

      120 cc.

    Correct Answer
    C. 80 cc.
    Explanation
    The patient drank one-third of the large glass, which means they consumed 1/3 of 240 cc. To find out how much they drank, we can calculate 1/3 of 240 cc. One-third of 240 cc is equal to 80 cc. Therefore, the nurse aide would record this as 80 cc.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Mr. Jones is place on strict intake and output after surgery. The nurse aide SHOULD

    • A.

      Keep Mr. Jones NPO.

    • B.

      Record all of the solid foods Mr. Jones eats.

    • C.

      Record all fluid intake and output every shift.

    • D.

      Measure only the first voiding after surgery.

    Correct Answer
    C. Record all fluid intake and output every shift.
    Explanation
    After surgery, it is important to closely monitor a patient's fluid intake and output to ensure proper hydration and to detect any potential complications. By recording all fluid intake and output every shift, the nurse aide can accurately track the amount of fluids the patient is consuming and eliminating. This information is crucial for the healthcare team to assess the patient's fluid balance and make any necessary adjustments to their treatment plan. Keeping the patient NPO (nothing by mouth) may be necessary in some cases, but it is not the appropriate action in this situation. Recording solid food intake and measuring only the first voiding after surgery are not comprehensive enough to monitor the patient's overall fluid status.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which of the following would be included in a client's output record?

    • A.

      Urine, food eaten, and IV solutions

    • B.

      Urine, emesis, and bleeding

    • C.

      Liquids taken in druing the shift

    • D.

      Bowel movements only

    Correct Answer
    B. Urine, emesis, and bleeding
    Explanation
    The client's output record would include urine, emesis (vomiting), and bleeding. These are all bodily fluids that need to be monitored and recorded for medical purposes. Liquids taken in during the shift and bowel movements are not considered output and would not be included in the client's output record.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Which of the following is an intake-and-output problem that the nurse aid MUST report?

    • A.

      The client states that he is not hungry.

    • B.

      The client requests a dedpan.

    • C.

      The client ahs not voided in eight hours.

    • D.

      The client's eight-hour ouput is 600 cc.

    Correct Answer
    C. The client ahs not voided in eight hours.
    Explanation
    The nurse aid must report the fact that the client has not voided in eight hours. This could indicate a potential urinary problem or obstruction that needs to be addressed by medical professionals. It is important for the nurse aid to communicate this information to ensure the client's health and well-being are properly monitored and addressed.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Mrs. Brown's water pitcher holds 600 cc. The pitcher is full at the begining of the shift. Halway through the shift, the pitcher is empty, and you refill it. At the end of the shift, the pitcher is one-half full. Total water intake for the shift.

    • A.

      1,200 cc.

    • B.

      600 cc.

    • C.

      900 cc.

    • D.

      300 cc.

    Correct Answer
    C. 900 cc.
    Explanation
    If the pitcher is full at the beginning of the shift and holds 600 cc of water, and then it becomes empty halfway through the shift and is refilled, it means that 600 cc of water has been consumed. At the end of the shift, the pitcher is one-half full, which means it contains 300 cc of water. Therefore, the total water intake for the shift is 600 cc + 300 cc = 900 cc.
